When one thinks about London’s fashion and style, inevitably the idea of edgy & avant-garde comes to our mind. It was as so, still is and hopefully it still will be; because there are things that should not change for the sake of our forever dreamy spirits, right!?
Here some very desirable trends from the spring / summer 2017 London’s fashion collections to get inspiration from…
THE BEAU BRUMMEL GIRL
Full of dark romance, timeless good taste, tamed extravagance and true modern elegance; men-inspired ensembles; principally based on dark suits (preferably accompanied by shirts with huge bows at their necklines), invited the public to start their transformation into the ‘Beau Brummel lady’ of today. A personification impossible to resist! (Burberry,
Roksanda, Julien MacDonald)
Artistically deconstructed and totally asymmetric coats, jackets, tops, dresses, pants, and separates in general; clearly stated the roots of London’s fashion; always appreciative of a total irreverence and freedom. No doubt a fearless attitude is what all of these collections are all about! (Toga,
Emilio de la Morena, Christopher Kane)
COLORFUL ART CELEBRATION
As the result of edgy cuts and silhouettes, mix-media, and a mélange of artistic movements; from figural art, passing through pop-art up to total abstraction; a long list of runways became a colorful, extraordinary, true celebration of art! (Mary Katrantzou, Roksanda, Capara)
Gorgeous suits and artistically tailored pieces made of silky fabrics, jacquards; beautiful metallic embellishments, luxurious extravagant details; such as wonderful ruffles, bows, high necks and voluminous sleeves; resulted in the most perfect opulence meets refined edge. Fantastic! (Burberry, Erdem, Marques Almeida)
THE STORY-TELLING DRESS
Spectacular whimsical colorful dresses full of artful detailing, designs, prints, symbols, images and motifs transformed lovely pieces into wonderful story-telling treasures; definitely worth to be added to our perpetual dreamy pseudo-reality. (Mary Katrantzou, Christopher Kane, Roberta Einer)
Not the typical camel trench we would expect; but trench coats with fascinating twists, such as XL volumes, asymmetrical fits and cuts, and original belting; make their statement in a crowd of mysterious but oh-so covetable fashion looks. (Joseph, Sharon Wauchob, Burberry)
LIFE IS A RUNWAY!
